There is work. I'm not working a lot of hours, but a lot is going on, and my head is whirling with ideas much of the time. The Gallery has been exceptionally busy. It makes me want to hurry to reconcile the inventory so that we can move ahead and keep up with the forward thrust; that requires more time than I can give it right now. So I try to keep myself focused in reality, doing what is possible in the time allotted. Not easy.
I can't give much more time to it, because at home I am setting up tables and sorting for the garage sale. I work some on that almost every day, and it, like the inventory reconciliation is just slower than I wish.
And while those are bugging me, I'm also doing things inside the house that will ultimately help with organizing my life into a manageable package. Such as this ... I finally moved the two filing cabinets into the house (off the deck, necessary before the garage sale), purged the old files which dated back two years plus, then began organizing the several file boxes of receipts and records I've been carrying with me all over the US in the past two years so they can be put into the file cabinets. I'm ready to put the files in the cabinets today, and it will be easier to file anything more I run across.
I also brought into the house a jeweler's bench I bought a few months ago for working on crafts. And I've begun putting my crafting tools and craft/art supplies away in the third bedroom. This room is to be my craft room and guest bedroom. Most of the tools and supplies go into or around the jeweler's bench, so it is a vital step in the organization. I more or less have to do this because I need somewhere to put the items of that type that I'm bringing in from the deck as I clear what I am keeping to prepare for the garage sale.
It seems that there should be an easier way to do this, but all these jobs in the house are related, and I almost can't do one without doing the others, too. My house is in a state of chaos as I'm using the living room as the sorting area, so all three rooms, living room, office and guest room are a mess. So I feel the chaos in most parts of my life right now, and just have to muddle through. I do see the light and rainbow at the tunnel. And as several friends remind me ... it is a process. It will settle out in good time.
On a lighter note I looked at Ali a couple days ago, and he had a funny "appendage" on his side. He was rolling on his fluffy, fuzzy ball, and it got tangled in his harness. He would take a few steps and turn to try to see what was touching him, but he never looked right at the toy! He was looking for something else, I guess!
And he was none too pleased when I wanted him to stand still for pictures! Doesn't he look abused here?
A final thought ... as I was driving home yesterday I looked at the storm clouds, and I realized that the sun behind them made the top of the clouds bright. I thought about this and it dawned on me that there is a promise at the top of the darkest clouds.
So no matter what disorder I am experiencing in my life, I need to stay aware that the sunshine will return in good time.
I wish everyone a good week!
Life is beautiful!!!
